Car­bon­ear fire de­part­ment called to house fire

The Compass - - Editorial - BY CHRIS LEWIS

The lo­cal fire de­part­ment got a call in the early hours of last Wed­nes­day about a house fire in Crocker’s Cove, Car­bon­ear.

The house, lo­cated at the cor­ner of Wa­ter Street and Burnt Head Road, suf­fered sig­nif­i­cant dam­ages from the fire.

Car­bon­ear Vol­un­teer Fire De­part­ment Fire Chief Brent Sweeney said the house was empty at the time. He is un­sure whether or not any­one lived there, al­though the house was oc­cu­pied a num­ber of years ago.

Crews that were on the scene spent the early hours of Wed­nes­day morn­ing keep­ing an eye on the build­ing and check­ing for hot spots. Sweeney says fire­fight­ers got home at around 7:30 a.m.

“The sit­u­a­tion was han­dled safely, and thank­fully there were no in­juries,” said Sweeney. Fire­fight­ers re­sponded to a blaze at this home in Crocker’s Cove March 15.
